How does it work

INJAZ UAE connects corporate volunteers to students (ages 11-24 ) through JAW business programs that prepare students for the professional world using interactive, experiential and practical mentoring activities.

Volunteers attend a brief orientation and business training before they start their mentoring experience, this helps enhance their mentoring abilities and readiness to inspire youth.
